Welcome to Barksdale AFB! The School Liaison Officer Program is here to assist Department of Defense employees and their families in making a smooth transition in and out of our local public, private, and homeschool environments. The School Liaison Officer is the primary point of contact for all school related matters, advocates for the needs of the military students, make referrals , provide educational options and networking opportunities, disseminate newsletters, facilitate workshops to address current trends, and is the liaison between the base, the schools and the local community. Our program has built a strong, supportive relationship with the local education agencies. However, we encourage you to read the school handbook so that you are familiar with policies and procedures associated with your student’s academic success.
